How will you and quite possibly your family be able to cope with the mounting health care bills and loss of income?

You may already have medical insurance that you have been paying, but how do you generate an income while you are unable to work. This and other problems are faced by the self employed just about every day with few if any answers. You have a satisfactory affordable health insurance plan that will cover up to 80% of your medical expenses.
